Grien, Hans Balding (Hans Baldung) [German, 1476?-1545]

[ 16th Century Artists ]

Baldung Grien, Hans (1484/85-1545). German painter and graphic artist. He probably trained with Dürer in Nuremberg, but his brilliant color, expressive use of distortion, and taste for the gruesome bring him closer in spirit to his other great German contemporary, Grünewald.

His output was varied and extensive, including religious works, allegories and mythologies, portraits, designs for stained glass and tapestries, and a large body of graphic work, particularly book illustrations. He was active mainly in Strasburg, but from 1512 to 1517 he lived in Freiburg-im-Breisgau, where he worked on his masterpiece, the high altar for Freiburg Cathedral, the centre panel of which is a radiant Coronation of the Virgin. His most characteristic paintings, however, are fairly small in scale — erotic allegories such as Death and the Maiden, a subject he treated several times. Eroticism is often strongly present in his engravings, the best known of which is The Bewitched Stable Boy (1544), which has been interpreted as an allegory of lust.

From October of 1916 through January of 1917, Rudolf Steiner gave a series of nine lectures known as the Art Course. These lectures were given the title of: The History of Art. Click here to discover what Steiner said about Baldung in the fourth lecture, or in the entire lecture series.
